New parents Ali Fedotowsky and Kevin Manno’s 6-week-old daughter, Molly, recently gave them a scare. “Molly must have drank too much milk and ended up spitting up a ton … and choking on it,” the season 6 Bachelorette wrote in an August 11 post on her blog Ali Luvs. “This happened at 11pm and after that, we were really nervous about sleeping.”

Which is why Fedotowsky wrote that she and Manno are “SO grateful for our Owlet Baby Monitor.” 

The 31-year-old wrote about Owlet — a wearable baby monitor that tracks an infant’s heart rate, oxygen level and body temperature — in June, before Molly was born. 

The $249 monitor, which is a smart sock worn on the baby’s foot, “uses the same technology that hospitals use … which was huge for me,” Fedotowsky explained. “If it’s good enough for the hospitals, then it’s good enough for us!”

Her favorite feature: All the information transmits via Bluetooth to her phone. “The Owlet is designed to alert parents if your baby stops breathing — no matter where she is sleeping,” Fedotowsky raved.

Fedotowsky isn’t Owlet’s only celebrity fan. Country singer Jana Kramer — who is the mom of little girl Jolie, 6 months — has said that she and her football player husband, Mike Caussin, “feel so much more comfortable knowing she’s wearing it.” 

Just keep in mind, the Owlet does not prevent sudden infant death syndrome, but rather lets parents know if their child is choking or suffocating. The American Academy of Pediatrics warns that cardiorespiratory monitors shouldn’t be used to prevent SIDS. Read their recommendations here.
